I've been collecting up rocks for the past 3 years... finally have cages to put them into. You might not be able to tell from the pics but the rockpile holes were filled with cinderblocks, bricks and rocks creating underground brumation areas... the bottom of the hole had a layer of gravel placed in it first...then once arranged I filled in the extra spaces with lava rock.

Years ago I had the same style cage outside in this area for chucks but I didn't have a cover... I would bring them indoors for the winter... With a top, not only will it protect 'em from predators but will allow them to stay outdoors all year (I feel better for the lizards).

I jumped up and down on the rock piles also before adding any animals-- they should be pretty stable. I'm happy with the overall outcome.

The 2nd cage still needs the corrageted plastic sides put on. I believe I have about $275-$300 in each completed cage buying everything. Not too bad.
